From an animal shelter in New Hampshire, Gina took her work home with her.

Ultralight Ready To Lead 14 Cranes To Florida
October 12, 2008
Another group of whooping cranes is set to follow an ultralight from
Wisconsin to Florida this week.
Fourteen young cranes are scheduled to take off Friday from the Necedah National
Wildlife Refuge, barring inclement weather. Ultralight pilots there have been
leading the impressionable birds on longer and longer training flights.
They'll head to wildlife refuges on Florida's Gulf Coast, passing through
Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia.
The project is part of the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership's efforts to
reintroduce a migratory flock of whooping cranes to the eastern United States.
This will be the partnership's eighth ultralight-led migration.
